FYI,

I am officially bogged down by a complete redesign of the entire application structure/styling. When I started, this was my first real project as a "web developer", so early on I did not apply a lot of common design patterns that I have come to understand more much more fully. Most of the app was pieced together one chunk at a time like Frankenstein, and once it looked good enough or mostly worked, I moved on to the next piece. Yeah, total n00b. ::)

I have decided to "fix" the design/layout/style inconsistencies throughout the app, so I'm putting all new feature development on hold until I'm happy with every single component. It's going to take some time, but maintainability and the ease of adding new features will be significantly increased. I really really really don't want to do this, but it was like jumping into quicksand when trying to weave in a new feature to the transaction editor. I finally gave up and decided to do it right.

So, v1.3.0 will be coming Soon™.

Edit: By the way, if I do my job right you'll be asking yourself why the app looks and works nearly the same.

Yes, displaying a list of the 3 most frequently used categories after selecting the payee is definitely possible. In fact, the app already does something similar in reverse when entering a transaction from the budget view for a specific category. It calculates the three most used payees for the category, and displays it above the full list. The logic should be the same for showing a list for showing a list of frequently used categories if the payee is set first. The app can still auto set the category to what was used for the last transaction, and the frequently used list will make it easy to switch for situations like you describe.

I run into the same situation often when I go to our local grocery store that has a gas station out front. When I have to enter two transactions in a row, one for food and one for filling my car up, it’s a toss up if the auto suggested category will be correct next time. Although, I have another secret project in the works that might take care of this issue...

Ok, so this works differently than I thought. Another suggestion: I have some general recipients where the category switches regularly. For example Kiosk or Restaurant. Sometimes its private use, sometimes its food I eat while at work, which I budget differently. Would a top 3 most used categories per payee be possible?

Love it. Might I suggest a possibility to change the suggested category?

Currently, the main app and mobile app set the category auto suggest value for a payee when you enter a transaction. It’s basically a memory of the last category used for the payee. Changing the setting manually would only apply to the next transaction that you enter for the payee, and it would be overwritten if the transaction is set to a different category. I decided to leave out the setting since it won’t have much of an impact on the behavior.

What I would really like to implement is a default category suggestion for a payee. If set, the category would always be set to the default when entering a transaction. If not set, then the normal auto suggest memory would take effect. This requires a change to both apps, so I would have to figure out how to do it in the main app, or work with @Alex to make it happen.

Edit: After thinking about it a little more, I can probably implement a separate default category suggestion setting for payees, and only the mobile app would utilize it. The category auto suggestion memory would still work the same in the background.

v1.2.1 released: Polished up payee manager list. Added "clear all selected" button. Enabled budget loading when navigating directly to the payee manager.

v1.2.0 released: BAM, payee management. You can rename and combine multiple payees into one. All transactions and split sub-transactions are automatically updated when combining. Upgraded from "font awesome" 4 to 5, so some of the icons are going to look a little different (maybe better? maybe not?).

I fought with making this work for hours upon hours upon hours, and found that the core library had a few simple but significant bugs. Nothing damaging to the data integrity, but objects that were supposed to go away (payees that were combined) would stick around annoyingly. After hammering that out, everything that was added looks much simpler than the effort that went into it.

After opening your budget, the payee manager can be accessed through the menu button in the top left of the app. Selecting a single category will allow you to edit it, which only allows for changing the name (for now). Selecting multiple payees will give you the option to combine them into one. I would explain more about how this works, but it's 4am and I'm half asleep.

I should also mention that I fixed a bug where you could use the calculator to divide zero, creating a transaction with an infinite amount. Sorry, no more free money.
